Tuesday was a Great Day!!!!

Tuesday was a very busy day!  It started with hurrying out the door to get Isabella to school, heading to Church for Bible Study and then back to school at noon to pick up Bella and then we brought her friend home with us but first we had piano lessons, lunch finally got home so they could play and I could clean.  When her mommy got here to pick her up all the girls played for a while and then they left, grabbed our mail threw it by the door and started getting Bella ready for gymnastics on the way out the door I saw the mail and flipped through it and saw the envelope from Show Hope.  I paused should I open it now or wait until we get home?  If it is good news, I want to know now-if it isn't good news I never want to know....  I took a deep breath and opened it and started reading the first paragraph which said --First I should tell you what/who Show Hope is-they are a company who care for orphans through special care centers, impact projects and mobilizing churches to help.  They provide awareness and help and adoption aid.  Back in October we filled out all the paperwork to apply for a grant and the decision were due out this month, so you might understand better now why I was excited and nervous when I was picking up the letter.  So, now to what the letter said:

On behalf of Show Hope and the donors who make our grants possible, we rejoice with your family as you step out in faithe to experience the miracle of adoption.  Thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your adoption process.  We are pleased to inform you that you have been awarded an adoption assistance grant in the amount of $4000.

Needless to say I was bent over and crying big tears!!!  Poor Bellas says, "mommy what's wrong?  are you ok!"  I told her yes, I am just so overjoyed that God continue to provide for us for our adoption!  I said I am so happy and so grateful and humbled!  I can not tell you what a big relief that was to see those words and to continue to see how God is providing the way spiritually and financially for our adoption.  " For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  Jeremiah 29:11  This scripture has been on my heart for about a month and this one has been in my head and a friend of mine posted it on my FB page "Philippians 1:6! He who began this work in you will finish it to completion."  God is so good to take each of us through our journeys, no matter how long or short or tough or easy.  He will always finish the work He has started in you, in each of us!!!  Praising our Lord for awesome news and He is working in our adoption yahoo group with bringing 2 referrals this week one to a family that has been waiting for 17 months.  What a great day to celebrate orphans being brought to their forever families!  God is good!!!
